Samson faces some stiff competition from Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik all considered vital in India’s T20I plans. The lack of middle-order slots means that the 27-year-old is also vying alongside the likes of Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav. However, like Dinesh Karthik, Samson still harbours hopes for a comeback and like the Tamil Nadu veteran, he has worked hard to improve on his skills.
